Big Wee Bee

Duration of the show
Visual storytelling, shadow puppetry, puppets
When Wee Bee is stepped on by a cow -again- she and her insect friends decide that they won't put on with the lack of care and respect they get every day by the bigger animals anymore. A revolution then starts, including stinging and biting and loads of itching. Will the little insects find a way of making themselves respected?
Exploring topics such as environmentalism and social justice this show wants to create an interactive experience for to empower children aged 5 to 11.
Several developments of the show have been previously presented at the Wee Spanish Mobile Library (2017), the Edinburgh Multilingual Stories Festival (2018) , Manipulate Festival as part of Testroom (2019) and The Worker's Theatre's Something Has to Happen Festival (2020).
